Blog Farts

Blog Fartsnoun. Def: Crappy ideas that are too short to make a real blog post, but when combined, join forces to make one unified, albeit half a$$ed, post. see also: memes, surveys.

I’m just “borrowing” the term  🙂

(If you follow me on Twitter, you’ve probably seen a bunch of these before. I figure if I get ‘em here, they’ll eventually end up in my Blog Book.)


Why is it that Logan can run around ALL day barefoot…but as soon as his PJs are on, all I hear is “Socks! Socks!” The boy can’t sleep without his socks.


The pipes in our upstairs bathroom seem to get confused and occasionally the toilet gets filled with hot water. Sitting on a toilet that’s been filled with hot water is not as pleasant as it may sound…


Maggie has informed us that she now wants to be called “Marjorie” …that IS her name, but I’m going to miss Maggie. Hope it’s just a phase.


After listening to Maggie insist that she’s “Marjorie” for the past few days, Burke is now trying to convince us that his name is “Tyrone”


Everything’s better with bacon.


Words to make any mom cringe: ‘I made a mess!!’ (while said kid in on the potty) *sigh*


Why is it that coffee that gets cold just isn’t the same as iced coffee?

What’s in a Name?

I realized that I don’t have a post for the kids to know why we named them what we did…so I figured I’d fix that. I’d love to say we have this whole drawn out story, but as usual – decision making with Mike is super easy – we seem to be on the same page for a lot of things…especially the important stuff, so the story is pretty simple.

We’ll go in order of age. (Sorry, Burke, Maggie’s got you beat by 30 seconds…)

Maggie: You were named after my grandmother (1st name) and Mike’s mom (middle name).

Burke: Your first name is Mike’s grandmother’s maiden name. It also happens to be the middle name of Mike’s dad, his aunt, and his uncle. Your middle name is the same middle name as my grandfather (although, he went by it because he didn’t like his first name), my dad, and my brother.

Logan: We just liked the name Logan 🙂 Your middle name, though, is Mike’s dad’s name.

On a related note, Maggie – if you were a boy, you would be Jake (Jacob Peter). Logan – if you were a girl, you would be Zoe May. Burke – we knew from the get-go that you were a boy, so you’ve always been Burke.

Those Darn Monkeys: Laura – I think Monster spray may be good for the MOMMY environment 😉 Silver – If I remember correctly, lavender is one of the ingredients in Paula’s essential oil “recipe” … mmmm, LOVE lavender 🙂

Copycat: Wow, Goddess…you ARE out of the loop 😉 I believe Scrubs was “ended” on NBC, but picked up elsewhere. And I’m pretty sure that JD and Carla will be leaving after this season, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that the show will be ending…although, I’m not sure how much of a show it will be without them. WAC – Thanks for the Firefly discs. Seeing as how our TV tastes are fairly similar, I’m kinda excited about it. Although, you’re trying to get me hooked on a series that has already been canceled, so I’m just setting myself up for heartbreak. Gio – We just can’t watch TV together 😉Jon – I totally should have known you’d have some great insight!! Thanks 🙂

WBW: Hi Missy – yup, Maggie’s totally asleep in all three pics. Crazy girl 🙂 Heather, did you get a picture of Bee with her head on the bed? That would be so cute! Laura – Oh, I’m showing it to all of her boyfriends…never mind her husband! LOL
